Inuit Art Quarterly - - PORTFOLIO -

This stun­ning im­age was cap­tured by Kau­tuk us­ing a drone in July of 2016 near Iglu­lik. The group of hunters, part of a Piqqusilirivvik Inuit Cul­tural Learn­ing Fa­cil­ity pro­gram out of Kangiq­tu­gaapik (Clyde River), stopped for a quick pic­ture af­ter butcher­ing two wal­ruses they had re­cently har­vested. Not­ing the high num­ber of pho­tog­ra­phers cur­rently work­ing out of Kangiq­tu­gaapik, Kau­tuk ex­plains the preva­lence is pos­si­ble per­haps, “be­cause the com­mu­nity is pretty small and we had noth­ing to do: no cell ser­vice, lim­ited tele­vi­sion grow­ing up and only dial-up In­ter­net un­til 2005.”
